Hi Binibikini, I am going to be taking Sennakot tablets tonight as I am so constipated it's making me very uncomfortble-sorry tmi. I'm in week 3 and at first it just slowed down but now very difficult to do anything. The packet says not to take until the evening so I will give it a shot tonight. Hope the senna tea works for you.

have you guys given fibre 89 a whirl? your cdc should have it.

add a teaspoon to your water/ coffee/ shake a day and it will keep you going regularly... not a biggy but at least a small one lol!!!

you will need to clear yourself (cant think of a nice way to put that...) first then start on the fibre 89, dont take it whilst you are constipated. it will only add to the problem. it is for preventative use not as a cure.

Thank you all for your ideas. I was thinking of picking up some benefiber (US version of mix-in-drink fibre) today and adding that to a glass of water. I hate being constipated!
BTW Cambridge*Diet*08 - I was up reading your blog last night and read all the way up to Day 114 or something :) wonderful insight and since Mini-mins is sleeping during my evening (EST) I have to resort to alternative mediums of motivation to not raid the fridge. I also found some great before-after vids on youtube.
Thanks again :)

Well I've been so constipated, I can't remember last going (eeek sorry guys too much info) so my CDC has suggested I start taking senekot untill it clears and then as said above to take the fibre after. Wish I'd used the fibre from the start. I'm so uncomfortable!!!! The ony thing with senekot and me is it makes me very weak the next day and on VLD it could be even worse but gotta give it a go. The joys, the joys.

How are you getting on hun? Have you had good start? xxx

I'm doing well Sunshine :) Im upbeat and loving this gift of lightness and awareness I am giving to my body. I am going to bed at night with visions of my future body and I'm constantly looking for ways to make myself feel happy - realizing the food is not the answer :)
Thanks for checking up on me xx

I think most of us have been affected by constipation on this diet. It's horrible. I've solved it by taking Psyllium husks which I get from the local health food shop. I take a couple with my morning and evening CD meal and have been fine ever since.

I took 2 senna tabs last night - and they did the trick for me, now going to try Fybogel as reccomended by CDC x

I'm having a Dulcolax tablet every couple of days - seems to do the trick. I have a tub of Benefiber in the cupboard, but it's higher in cals and carbs per 'serving' than the cambridge fibre, so my counsellor suggested Dulcolax or the cambridge supplement instead.

On a similar note my IBS symptoms and painful bloating stopped immediately I started on CD! I can cope with this kind of 'slowness' as it doesn't come with pain and a tummy like a coconut. Huge relief! :)
